Our team is composed of cognitive scientists working on the neurobiological and psychological foundations of consciousness. We are especially interested in how conscious and unconscious processes differ at both the psychological and neural level. We use various behavioral methods (e.g., priming, psychophysics) and brain imaging techniques (e.g., fMRI, EEG) to study how humans process things unconsciously (e.g., as in situations of subliminal perception, sleep or hypnosis) and compare it to situations of conscious processing.

Les centres d’intérêts de l’équipe vision du Laboratoire Psychologie de la Perception sont les différents aspects de la perception visuelle. Son expertise couvre l’attention visuelle, la conscience visuelle et les décisions perceptives, le couplage sensorimoteur, la perception 3D, et l’interaction entre la vision et les autres modalités sensorielles. Ses méthodes expérimentales sont issues de la psychophysique, de la neuro-imagerie, des études sur des patients cérébro-lésés, et de la modélisation.
